Increase in missing persons in Baguio not linked to kidnapping - BCPO Director

Updated: Oct 13, 2022


Baguio City, Philippines – The Director of Baguio City Police Office (BCPO), Police Colonel (PCOL) Glenn Lonogan released a statement saying there is no sufficient evidence that the increase in the number of cases of missing persons in the city is linked to kidnapping.


This was the assurance of the BCPO Director on March 4, 2022 as he responded to public assumption that the missing persons reported in the last months were either kidnapped, or might have been lured ‘over promises of good-paying jobs.’

As the public grew worried over the increasing persons being reported missing earlier this year, Lonogan, through the Public Information Office - City of Baguio, reported that the investigation of the BCPO on four missing persons ‘showed no indications of abduction.’


The BCPO Director added that one case is already closed, with one nearing its resolution, while two ‘are still being followed.’

Lonogan added that the cases are neither linked to job recruitment, adding that their “office wants to assure the public that we are doing our best to investigate and resolve all these cases and we are appealing for their cooperation by paying extra attention to their family’s security."


The BCPO Director advised families to also ‘strengthen their relationship to address problems on juvenile delinquency and truancy.’
